Police charged an Iron Station man and two Lincolnton women this week with breaking into and ransacking a home on the city’s northern end.
Devin Lamar Robinson, 20, of 3864 Oakwood Circle, along with Latisha Shante Robinson, 22, of 228 Mauney Drive, and Alexis Marie Oates, 23, of 230 Mauney Drive, found themselves behind bars Monday, according to a police department press release.
The trio broke into a residence through a kitchen window and back door around 5:30 p.m. at 224 Mauney Drive and rummaged through the home before fleeing the area with stolen goods, police said.
Once apprehending the individuals, officers said they located a number of the stolen items.
All three suspects have been charged with one felony count each of breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, and conspiracy to break and enter.
Devin Robinson received additional charges for assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting, delaying and obstructing a public officer, police said. He has since posted a $14,000 secured bond.
Oates and Latisha Robinson each received a $5,500 secured bond. While Oates has been released, her alleged counterpart remains in jail.
Latisha Robinson has a history of criminal behavior, according to the North Carolina Department of Correction website.
Her records listed misdemeanor convictions in Catawba County in 2009 and 2010 for two separate incidents of larceny. Additional offenses included resisting an officer and simple assault/affray.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and the Lincolnton Housing Authority assisted police in Monday’s incident.
As detectives continue to investigate the case, future arrests may occur.
